POWER OF
INFORMATION
“Disaster-affected people need
information as much as water, food,
medicine or shelter. Information can save
lives, livelihoods and resources.”

DISASTER
RESPONSE
THROUGH SOCIAL
MEDIA
“The models that are emerging indicate
that affected people are becoming
extremely adept at using social media
platforms in particular to engage in
networked systems of response. This
means they are able to post about specific
needs and solicit individual responses to
those needs, and that people offering
specific help can also do so”

FEMA MOBILE APP
“Unfortunately, we’ve been underwhelmed
with the use of that app, because I think
everyone is at the Weather Channel doing
their Instagrams there,” …. “Instead of
trying to do everything ourselves, we need
to find smarter ways to integrate the social
media world more effectively into how we
perform our business functions.”
Scott Shoup
chief data officer at FEMA

”Immediate damage estimates based on FEMA
models can miss areas of heavy impact. Augmenting
initial models with real-time analysis of social media
and crowdsourced information can help identify
overlooked areas. Twitter-sourced estimates were
virtually available as people tweeted distress signals,
of these parcel-level damage estimates, 46 percent
were not captured by FEMA estimates.”
